Our Project

Arts Aid – Stitch In

Fundraising for Tsunami Relief Work in South Asia
Co-organized by Art for All, Artbility and Art in Hospital

In order to help those who were suffered from the destructive disaster and to support the community rebuilding work in South Asia, Art for All, Art in Hospital & Artbility art studio are joining hands to organize “Arts Aid - Stitch In” fundraising event to raise money for Cedar Fund and other South Asian relief organizations.

We hope to show our cares through the process of stitching which represents healing the broken hearts. Through this arts fundraising event, children in Hong Kong not only have the chance to show their care to the victims through drawing and quilt, but they also receive a positive message that we all have the social responsibilities to the earth and the community, where arts should not keep their distances to the society, and be limited inside school or art studio only. We believe arts are powerful tools to spread our love to the world.

“Arts Aid - Stitch in” has been receiving many positive feedbacks since it was introduced. Communities such as primary schools, parents and women organization show their support in our activities as participants and volunteers. Besides, several Hong Kong artists also donate their artworks for the good deed.

藝愛心縫心

兒童拼布籌款活動 助南亞災民重建家園
全人藝動、Artbility 及 藝術在醫院 合辦

為支援在南亞地區展開的救援工作,協助災民盡快重建家園,全人藝動、Artbility及藝術在醫院於2005年1月9日合辦「藝愛心縫心」兒童拼布籌款活動。希望透過拼布藝術,讓香港兒童表達他們對災民的祝福和關懷。兒童及獲邀藝術家的拼布作品稍後會進行展覽及籌款義賣,為「施達基金會」及南亞裔同類救援組織籌款,用作賑災及地區重建發展經費。

「藝愛心縫心」兒童拼布籌款活動自宣傳至今,一直得到各方熱烈支持。在我們較早前舉行有關的工作坊,不少家長都陪同小朋友出席,參與繪畫及拼布創作。透過繪畫,讓香港兒童表達對災民的關懷,對仍在哀傷中的人作出安慰,同時也希望兒童和父母合力將兒童作品製成拼布(Quilt)。「心縫心」代表香港兒童與父母的心連在一起,也代表他們的心意與災難中的人結連,一起渡過困境。稍後我們會將兒童和父縫製的拼布作義賣小年紀的兒童不但明瞭南亞區災民正面對的危難,他們的作品中更處處表現出對災民的關心和祝願。除了有兒童畫室及學校負責人表示有興趣帶領兒童參與是次籌款活動外,不少有心人士及婦女團體亦主動與我們聯絡,表示願意成為是次活動的義工。是次活動更得到多位知名藝術家捐出藝術作品,以藝術支持南亞地區的賑災工作。
